Today we salute all Americans who served our country in the armed forces. As overseas deployments (we hope) decrease in the coming years and more of today’s troops become veterans of the military, seeing that they have the attention, care and opportunities they have earned through their service will be one of the most important challenges America faces both morally and economically.
To that end, I’d like to remind everyone about the work of the Georgia Warrior Alliance. The alliance seeks to help both active-duty soldiers and veterans navigate the web of help available to them and to make sure they have the training they need to find a place in a tough job market. I’ve written before that this is both an obligation and an opportunity for Georgia, with our large active-duty and veteran populations, and our vast and diverse resources in the some of the very fields that would benefit them and could help our state develop in the future.
If you or someone you know is a veteran or active-duty solider in need of help readjusting to society, please take some time today to direct them to the resources available through the Georgia Warrior Alliance.
